Our Year Three class teacher is Mrs Draper, with Mrs Roberts teaching mathematics.
Year Three is the first year of Key Stage Two. Children move upstairs to the Year Three classroom and also take a step up in their work, independence and responsibilities. This is the year where each child will have the opportunity to earn a much-coveted 'pen licence'. Children will be able to participate in a wider range of clubs and may begin to represent the school in competitive sporting events. During the year, some children excitedly prepare to celebrate their First Confession and First Holy Communion at St Teresa's Church next door. Year Three is a lovely age where the children deepen existing talents, discover new ones and enjoy celebrating each others' achievements and milestones as a class. The Year Three curriculum at St Teresa's provides an exciting immersion into the a wide range of topics, including 'Predators', 'Tribal Tales' and 'Heroes and Villains'. Science and geography topics provide for investigation into tectonic activity and geographical aspects of the local area. Trips vary from year to year, but this term we are heading to Aylesbury Museum to find out about predators in our local area and then we will visit the Roald Dahl Exhibition. To sum up Year Three in the words of one of our current Year Three pupils: "I think Year Three's a wonderful class because there are no boring subjects and we are going to get a pen licence!"
